She stars as a young Queen Victoria, but the brunette appeared to be filming one of the monarch’s rare days off – slipping into a bathing suit and paddling in the shallows.

With the series often praised for its authentic set design, the burgundy ensemble remained traditional in style with its sailor-inspired shirt, trousers and matching cap.

Plunging deep into the shallows, the British beauty proved unfazed by its cold temperatures as she filmed a number of playful scenes, before returning to a mobile beach hut to change.

She later emerged in a stunning white lace gown, complete with formal ruffle detailing on the bodice and a co-ordinating headdress.

However, the look did not stop the monarch from enjoying her surroundings – with Jenna holding up her skirt and wading into the water for the camera.

The brunette was joined by Laurence Fox on set, who was confirmed to be playing the charismatic and wayward Foreign Secretary Lord Palmerston last month.

The actor, 40, looked worlds away from his usual self in a jacquard waistcoat, shirt and bow tie as he embarked on some of his first scenes for the show. 

Jenna and Laurence will be joined for series three by Tony and Olivier Award nominee Kate Fleetwood – who stars as Victoria’s mysterious sister Feodora, and makes a shock arrival into the royal’s life.

Nicholas Audsley and David Burnett have also been confirmed to be joining the cast as new characters, although their specific roles remain unknown.

Starting in 1848, the third installment of the lavish drama will depict a turbulent and uncertain time for both Europe and the monarchy.

With revolutions on the continent and the Chartist movement reaching its peak in London, Victoria is under pressure from the government to leave London for her own safety.

Creator Daisy Goodwin said: ‘Victoria and Albert are the most famous couple of the nineteenth century, but underneath the united facade, their relationship is at breaking point and it is a struggle for mastery that neither side can win.’

Praised for its opulent production values, Victoria is one of ITV’s most successful dramas, with the first series being the highest rating drama of 2016 on the channel.

The second series continued to prove immensely popular, attracting a consolidated average of 6.4 million viewers.

Exciting: Victoria was confirmed for a third series earlier this year, and is expected to air in 2019
